I always like the look and feel of timber. I'd go so far as to say i prefer dark coloured timber with the curled fore end over a rounded fore-end. Same when it comes to semi autos. I'd look for these over other variations to the point were i've passed up on a gun because of the aesthetics.
This to me is the perfect example of a shotgun i'd go for.
Does style play a big part in how you choose a gun and if so which do you prefer and why?
